Color of new clear oak floors much lighter than old

I am having new clear red oak floors put upstairs in my hallway. The old clear red oak on the stairs is way darker and more orangish. I am not liking the look of the two against each other. Will the new oak floors darken over time?

Yes. I have unstained red oak floors that were installed in the early 70's, one room in the early 80's, kitchen and bath in the 90's, and a add-on family room that was done 4 years ago. They blend well!
